Separation anxiety barking

Hey gang, once again I need your expertise. So this evening Billy and I went out to do some shopping and left Sammy home. My elder lad was home in his room, which Sammy probably forgot, and that is how I wanted it as I wanted to find out what Sammy did when he thought he was left home alone. In a nutshell, he wimpered, cried, and barked at the front window the whole time we were gone; about 20 minutes or so. So, the question is how do I get him to be settled when he's home alone? Originally I was going to put him in the crate, but he has not ever been crate trained before and I wonder if that would be even more stressful for him. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Trish, yeah I wouldn't worry about the crate. That will only add to the stress. Here's a good article on SA. http://www.dogstardaily.com/training/home-alone
